As organizations become more and more dependent upon a powerful IT infrastructure, there is increased pressure on administrators to be able to monitor and troubleshoot quickly and effectively. Systems Center Operations Manager (SCOM) makes this possible, giving administrators a simple way to manage the performance of their infrastructure and allowing them to focus on the steps to optimize and improve it.

This Learning Path will start by enlightening you on the core fundamentals that will help you leverage your IT assets in order to derive high benefits. We will demonstrate the configuration and deployment aspect of SCOM and its various services based on your business requirements.

This Learning Path then covers advanced monitors and data collection,where you’ll learn to gather data and put it on dashboards.

By the end of the course, you will be a master in SCOM 2016.
